    Since the Amerigo Vespucci is an Italian military ship, I doubt that the pictures were taken in Egypt: the women look very much like wives and girlfriens… I’d rather think they were in Italy.

    Doing a search on the web, I found the first picture posted in facebook, with a caption claiming that it was taken in Naples in 1963, and that Egypt was the destination.

      Interesting cause I had the same doubt. Not sure that’s in Egypt. But can’t find anything about the story of this event online … at least not so far

    It’s the inaugural journey of the Amerigo Vespucci,

    Naples 1931. (as you can tell easily from women’s fashion and the use of black and white)
